[audio]Radio Event No. 18: Radio Free Music Day
On November 7, 1971, between the hours of 2 PM and 4 PM, as part of its genre defying, groundbreaking Radio Event series, KPFA invited the public to play music live on the radio. The KPFA mobile bus was at a park in downtown Berkeley California where the listening public, and anybody else in the area, was asked to bring sound making devices of any sort and to play them in front of the KPFA mics. Foghorns, tympani, license plates, gongs, saxophones, guitars, and garbage cans were all welcome...

[audio]Radio Event No. 23: Chrysanthemum Chameleon
One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory, Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California. In this, the 23rd program in the series, Alex Dea and a group of 25 singers, invited the listening audience of KPFA to come to the studio, or gather at their home with friends and with the radio on, and join them in an evening of meditative chanting. In “Piece I” everyone was instructed to sing at their lowest note and gradually move to their highest note using any vowel sounds s...

[audio]Radio Event: No. 1 Radio Caress
This is the first in a series of programs produced by KPFA's Music Department in which artists from various disciplines were asked to take any amount of air time and get the audience to respond physically to the audio broadcast instead of just being passive listeners. While the events can be enjoyed as auditory soundscapes the primary purpose was to produce "event art" or "happenings", with the listeners as active participants...

[audio]Radio Event No. 8: Bags
In a unique integration of radio, art, and the listening audience, Peter Veres, Anthony Gnazzo, and Gene Turitz present an interactive documentary on bags. This intermedia event was co-sponsored by KPFA and the Berkeley Art Center in Live Oak Park, Berkeley. This program is, in many ways, a field recording of children and other visitors interacting in a room full of bags at the Art Center, while Veres, Gnazzo, and Turitz provide a running commentary on the events as they unfold (or get crumpled)...

[audio]Radio Event No. 2: No Soap, Radio
This is the second in a series of groundbreaking, participatory, radio programs produced by KPFA. In this program, recorded on October 31, 1969, Berkeley California sculptor, Peter Veres, invited listeners to take part in a do-it-yourself Halloween Brindle Party, a self-proclaimed Witches’ Sabbath, all through the magic of the radio air waves. (What’s a Brindle you ask, why it's the opposite of a Mugwamp of course.) Prior to the actual event, subscribers to the KPFA program guide were encour...

[audio]Radio Event No. 9: Boiling Water
One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory, Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California.

[audio]Radio Event No. 14: Armenia Gardenia
Armenia Gardenia” by Charles Amirkhanian, was the 14th program in the groundbreaking Radio Event series, in which audience reactions were incorporated into a live KPFA radio broadcast. This work utilizes short pre-recorded sound events, such as snatches of music or talking, that were then played over the air interspersed with long periods of silence. Amirkhanian then waited for listeners to call into the station to inquire as to the nature of the broadcast in progress...

[audio]Radio Event No. 5: X-Change
Composed in 1969 specifically for broadcast on KPFA’s groundbreaking, audience participation, Radio Event series, Anthony Gnazzo has created yet another hilarious work of sound poetry or aural montage. Mixing snippets of advertisements, announcements, and music from the mainstream media with excerpts of phone interviews that Gnazzo conducted with KPFA listeners about their impressions of radio programming and commercials, this work captures the combination of youthful innocence and crass capit...

[audio]Radio Event No. 7: Junk and All that Jazz
A lengthy aural montage of interviews and monologues on the topic of “junk” mixed with snippets of jazz music and live in-studio chatter and listener phone calls to KPFA. Under the direction of composer Anthony Gnazzo, his text-sound composition was played on the radio during one of KPFA’s groundbreaking listener participatory Radio Events. Chaotic and fun, this sort of adventurous and experimental programing was typical of the anarchistic artistic world that was Berkeley during the late 1...
